LAWYER MONTHLY LEGAL AWARDS 2021 What motivates you most about your role? Family lawyering is an ever-evolving area of the law which encompasses both hard and soft skills. I value both; and am privileged to practise in a field where each case is unique to its own family dynamics and circumstances. What is most important to you within your career? Growing and maturing as a legal practitioner has been key. As we transition into a less adversarial approach to resolving marital breakdowns, collaborating with fellow practitioners and stakeholders has been helpful. I am especially fortunate to work alongside stellar colleagues and to have the support of my family. What do you want to achieve in 2022? As we move into a new year, the hope is always for better things to come, to do better and improve oneself. P/s I am also crossing my fingers that the world will be Covid free! 105
